On-line Intelligent Hotel Automation Systems
THINK GREEN WITH ...
THINK GREEN Tecnovox has undertaken the mission to respect the environment as a proper matter of research that walks side by side in armony with tecnology development. Tecnovox, has firstly introduced the concept of energy saving in accommodation facilities (hotels, hospitals and nursing homes) from the rooms till common areas with equipment for automatic control, fully respecting the comfort of customer and the environment status. Tecnovox introduced LED lighting as an alternative to incandescent lamps as well as the fluorescent that are aesthetically unsuitable for elegant and refined environment. The mission in this sense has gone beyond, starting from equipment it concerns the design of systems with research of the lowest energy consumptions, through the streamline of electronic devices and selecting the appropriate components. Tecnovox in the Amplification systems was one of the first to use digital amplifiers that dramatically increased the performance, decreasing consumption during operation and reducing the absorption in stand-by to negligible levels. These special qualities are particularly important for alarm and voice evacuation systems that works permanently. Also it has been reserved a particular importance to packaging that further use recycled materials, has been to completely avoid the long-deteriorating materials (polystyrene or similar) as request by the European Union.

CHARACTERISTICS TECHOTEL TH3 maximum security and reliability. 1) Distributed intelligence: every peripheral unit its own memory, allowing data conservation in any condition: power failure, data bus interruption, etc. 2) PC for viewing and control: the PC is the interface for the operator allowing viewing and control of all functions. 3) Software: easy and really friendly software will allow real time control and viewing.
Bathroom help call Pull cords switch usually installed in the bathroom, allowing the help call that will be reported visually and acoustically to the control central indicating the related room.
Power failure detection Connecting the auxiliary contact of the room main switch to the proper input of the room unit, will be detected the electrical power failure, avoiding guest discomfort.
Room burglar alarm Will signal optically and acoustically in the central unit any intruder attempt by means of a magnetic switch installed onthe window or on the entrance door or maybe a presence detector (microware or IR) detecting any entrance not followed by a proper reset obtained intro- ducing the valid card into the indoor holder/reader.
ACCESS CONTROL WITH CHIP CARD OR TRANSPONDER A card reader well be installed aside the room entry door, controlling an electric strike fixed in the door stud. Thanks to the flexibility and the adaptation, the system can be employed with any kind of door and lock. The card coding will be made at the check-in setting access reference and time validity. The invalidation will be automatically made at the scheduled permanence or manually. All transit operations will be recorded in a proper file reporting entrance and card identification for any entrance and for the rooms also the exit time.
Room access The access card reader, will depend on the room main unit. The access card validation will be set at the check-in and set out at check-out. In addition to the guest card, the reader will recognize the staff â€œpass cardsâ€?.
Common areas access It will be possible to control any entrance to common areas of the building, like special guest service areas swimming pool, fitness center, etc.). These entrances can be enabled either for guest cards adding the codes during the check-in operation or permanently for personnel cards and even coding temporary cards for maintenance, visitors, etc. Any transit will be recorded in a proper file.
Private access Entrances to private areas like offices, warehouses, technical areas, can be controlled by card reader for staff entrance. Any room can be also equipped with internal card container for presence detection and in case for energy saving. All entrances will be recorded in a proper file.
Pass and temporary cards These cards can be coded through password protection by the qualified personnel and will be denominated with reference to the name, cathegory, level etc. They would be enabled permanently or temporary, for all the rooms and common entrances or for part of them.
ROOM ENERGY CONTROL AND SAVING Electricity and climate of the rooms, can be controlled by the central and related to guest presence in the room to obtain both the maximum comfort and saving. Electricity saving The room powering, excluding minibar, fan coil and battery charger outlet, will be switched by means of a proper relay controlled by the card container-reader. The switching OFF of the room powering will be delayed after card extraction. Courtesy light For a better guest comfort, a “Courtesy light” will be switched-on entering the room. The light will switch automatically OFF after a preset time.
